    This was our second stay here. We live the location, just far away enough from the town and village. Lots of nice walks as well. Even though it’s rural you can drive to the shops in a few minutes. The property itself is large but still homely. We like that we can bring our dog. The owner who lived in the near by farm house is very helpful. The first stay we had the DVD player didn’t work so they gave us there’s until they brought a new one for the barn the next day. Same second visit, we needed batteries and they got them straight away. They also were very understanding when one of the kids broke something. Hopefully they will let us back again!

    Although there are some things which could have been better ( instructions for appliances, more bins for ease of requested recycling, hoover and mop in situ) it was spacious for all of us. It is a shame that the dogs apparently have to be on a lead in the garden even though it is enclosed and that that the information pack does not state this.

    The cottage suffered greatly from what appeared to be neglect, furniture is no longer what is pictured and several important safety and comfort features were neglected. In the games room a light switch was broken and a plug socket also. The carpet was also lifting creating a trip hazard. None of the uplighters had bulbs in. Additionally while on the subject of the games room. There were not a complete sets of darts provided or chalk for the board. Only one cue was in working order for the pool table and this also broke while we were there! The lighting in the room is insufficient for a games room. The cottage is dark which is unavoidable given the excellent courtyard so this i am fine to accept however several bulbs were blown so it was always gloomy even with the lights on. The conversion of the upstairs into another flat has the unfortunate result of making every move upstairs heard in the downstairs. I found myself several times silently screaming "SIT DOWN" at the ceiling. The advertised satellite TV is actually free-view and reception on several nights was non existent. (literally unwatchable) and as for the wifi, this barely worked and constantly dropped out. It was, to all intents non-existent, add this to the total lack of phone signal (unavoidable I know but all the more reason for WiFI to actually work) we may as well have holidayed in a cave. Of course this explained the lack of plug sockets as there was no point in plugging anything in. There was also no radio but a bluetooth speaker was provided. Again fairly useless with no wifi. The TV was loose wired with hanging cables from a shelf, these should be concealed or conduited. A child could easily grab onto them. Of greater concern from a health and safety aspect was the non working extractor fans in the bathrooms. The main one was not even sealed and the entire faceplate could lift off exposing the (possibly live but as it didn't work who knows) wiring. The en-suite bathrooms extractor was so loud as to be essentially dead also. Switched off. Back to the main bathroom. The shower riser was broken so you could only really fit under if you were a dwarf or a child. The floor tiles also needed some TLC as they were pretty much all cracked. There was also no indication of how to use the towel rails in each bathroom. We had a minor drop in temperatures during our stay and to say the radiators were cryptic is an understatement, we wrapped up warm instead. The kitchen was not well equipped, pots and pans need replacing and there were no bin bags provided. The dishwasher was in need of salt and useless. The pictured tablecloth did not exist. I fully understand that the properties do undergo wear and tear but considering that the owners house is further up the drive to leave the property in such a state of disrepair is disgusting. The electrical issues should be sorted as a matter of urgency. Probably the most disappointing cottage I have visited in the past 10 years.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review and we are very saddened to hear of your experiences with us. We would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. It is, of course, your comments that help us to improve our properties and we take all of our reviews very seriously. As a result, we have conducted a thorough end-of-season assessment of our properties internally. Any or all minor internal issues have subsequently been addressed. The games room is a very popular facility with all of our guests. We kindly ask all guests to be respectful when using the Games Room and to notify us if any of the equipment is broken whilst in use. We do our best to keep track of any breakages but we cannot always be on top of this if items are broken between changeover days. For all future guests please do let us know of any damages straight away. We do not charge for this unless the damage is malicious and, in any event, we prefer to know so that items can be replaced immediately. This is a well-lit room with spotlights across the entire ceiling from end - end. We have subsequently upgraded our Games Room with new equipment for our future guests to enjoy. With particular regards to the furniture, we regularly replace and upgrade items and so, often, what is in the property on arrival may vary slightly from the photographs on the website. However, they are always upgraded items and for the information of future guests, we now have an oak dining set with upholstered chairs for extra comfort and a large upholstered corner sofa big enough for the whole family to enjoy their social time in the evening. The property also provides ample plug sockets in the bedrooms and the main dining/ living area and we can provide extension leads should guests require more charging points. We have added an extension lead to the property in the event that this might be required. We also note your comments with regards to the heating system. Our system is a powerful and effective electric system that works as central heating or as manual. Full details of how to use the radiators are contained within the property information folder found in each property. However, should our guests ever want assistance with the heating, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will assist without delay. We would like to reiterate that, as owners, we take great pride in our properties and urge all future guests to advise us immediately should you come across problems such as poor TV reception. Due to our rural location, of course, adverse weather conditions can sometimes have an effect on the television reception, although this is rare and not often something that our guests experience. We have also carried out an investigation into the Wi-Fi and we have not found any issues. We have always received good comments regarding the speed of our Wi-Fi and all recent guests have reported that the Wi-Fi is working very well. Nonetheless, for the avoidance of doubt, you do not require internet access to use the Bluetooth speaker facility in the property. However, we sincerely apologise for your experiences with the Wi-Fi, and we are unsure what the problem might have been for you at that time. For all our future guests, if you have any concerns regarding the Wi-Fi please inform us immediately so that we can investigate it for you and put it right straight away. By simply letting us know of any issues like this during your stay, allows us the opportunity to put it right for you so as to prevent such things from affecting your stay with us generally. We would like to stress to all of our guests that your stay is incredibly important to us and we, as owners, like to make every effort to facilitate your enjoyment of everything that Ladwood Farm has to offer. We are friendly, approachable owners who will go above and beyond to ensure that you have a memorable stay with us.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the use of the games room as it provided with many hours of joy. The bathroom and toilets were very clean. Also, the seclusion was very enjoyable as we were away from everyone. Furthermore, the rooms were very spacious and beds bigger than I expected.

    We had a very nice time in Barn Terrace. The men and kid I traveled with loved the game room. In the kitchen I missed some tools I would use home but nothing that important we couldn't do it without it. The Barn Terrace is a place where you feel like coming home because it's such a nice place. I would certainly recommend it to friends and family. Also, you get the warmest welcome ever when you arrive.

    Barn Terrace is located in a lovely area from where you can get to many places quickly. The hosts are very kind and will help you with any questions you might have. They also give tips about places worth visiting. The appartement is spacious and lovely decorated. Well worth the visit.
